Are you black? If not, DePaul.
I agree- not that Howard isn't a good school because it's a great school and I was a little sad that I got rejected but your best chance at getting a big job after Howard would be if you were black
No offense, but that's ridiculous. White students DO go to Howard, you know, and are not at any greater disadvantage for getting jobs because they went to a school that has a large minority population.
What SHOULD factor in your decision is: Where you want to practice, the school's bar passage rate, the cost, and obviously, whether the school has the programs you're looking for.
Actually it's not ridiculous. There are a lot of other threads on here about the same subject and I stand by my comment- a lot of the BIG law firms that recruit from Howard do so because it is a HBCU and they are looking for minorities. I'm not saying that if you are in the top 10% at howard you wont get a good job if your white but chances are those firms already found their non-minorites at harvard and yale and are going to howard to fill what they need
It is ridiculous. I know white Howard grads. They got good jobs. I think you're treading on dangerous territory saying that you should only consider Howard if you're black.
